Where did you get the information, to have the phone plugged in, when you did that three button combination to hard reset the phone. I don't remember reading that anywhere, and when I recovered my phone from a boot loop, the phone was not plugged in.

So, try it without the phone being plugged in, starting with phone off after a battery removed and reinserted.

I'm no expert, but what I did following someone's posted directions, worked for me.

Make sure that the phone has battery.

Follow the hard recovery, three button technique.
Does it enter a recovery mode?

If so, continue. If not, idk.

To Try to recover

Use the up and down volume key to scroll.
Use the home / back button to enter

I first did option one, and it did not fix the problem
Second I did option 3, and the phone recovered.

we need a custom flash and custom recovery fo this before i try to root this baby------ if any one knows a way or finds this i will be so happy .............................. :)

I rooted 3 admires so far and had 0 issues. Install superuser prior to doing root instructions and bingo. I am running windows 7 + i installed the flash 11.0 with no issue either. Root explorer, titanium pro, link2sd, cachecleaner for root users, also installed.
